FY20 Staff/Course (L) Collection, v6
Please refer to the Release Notes for details regarding this newly posted collection request.

Reminder: Early Childhood Education Qualification Element
The Early Childhood Education Qualification Element is part of the Staff Demographic (CI) Record. Teachers who do not have an appropriate certificate or license but do have a degree—or are working towards a degree—in an approved related field can be properly certified via this element. See EMIS Manual Section 3.3: Staff Demographic (CI) Record, version 6.1, page 6 for information about this element.

For any of your district’s preschool courses that are appearing on the Teacher Licensure Course (TLC) Status Report with a proper cert flag of N, be sure to review this element for the relevant teacher(s). For preschool teachers who meet one of the numeric options (1–6), accurate reporting will allow their preschool courses to appear on the TLC Status Report as properly certified.
